Central London
c.£110k + car, bonus & more

I have a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Cost Estimator to join the work winning team of one of the UK's leading, top tier main contractors at their smart, modern offices in Central London. As the Senior Estimator, you'll be working on tenders for exciting, high profile new builds where projects often exceed costs of £100m. The successful Senior Cost Estimator can expect exposure to a variety of projects with recent examples including a new school, 14 storey student accommodation project, a £150m+ grade II listed refurbishment, luxury residential new build in Belgravia and a new hospital.

As a Senior Cost Estimator, you'll be working closely with the Pre-Construction Director and 5 Estimating colleagues. You'll ultimately be tasked with securing the best projects in London with some of your traditional duties to include:

  • Reviewing clients specifications and drawings to prepare accurate costings for materials, labour & equipment
  • Reviewing tender documents and submission requirements ensuring all details are identified and provided including accurate design proposals
  • Providing different design options and value solutions
  • Supporting junior estimators in their roles

This rare opportunity promises to give the successful Senior Cost Estimator a chance to work on the capitals most exciting projects within a business that rewards with market leading salaries & packages and unrivalled career prospects. There's a starting salary & package that includes:

  • Starting salary of up to £110k
  • Car allowance £7k
  • Bonus
  • Private healthcare

Senior Cost Estimators considering this opportunity will need to have:

  • Experience working for a leading main contractor on UK based projects in a dedicated estimating capacity
  • First class communication skills
  • A sound understanding of tier one main contractor procurement processes
  • A willingness to help and develop others

This opportunity would be well suited to a Senior Cost Estimator with main contracting experience but lacking the right career opportunities in their current role, feeling undervalued or someone looking to gain exposure to working on high value tenders.
